3 months on Tane, when does this stop?

Recommended Posts

Ok gang,

It's been 3 months (or a little over) that I've been on Accutane (the generic form). I'm STILL breaking out. Would it be safe to assume that the breaking out starts to at least subside by month 4? My first month consisted of 40mg. Months 2-5 @ 60mg a day. I would have hoped to be clear by now....grrrrrrrrrr. I guess that's why treatment is for 5 months and not 3, eh? ;-)

My doc told my treatment will last for 6-7 months.I'm only on 60 per day

but he said he wont put me on a higher dose(he said i should take 90 for my weight)cause the side effects will be worse.I'm on 3 month too and i have only 2 pimples right now but i still breakout 1 or 2 pimples every 5 days...My acne also is mostly closed comedones so its harder to get all the stuff out.Patience is the key.
